Olga's Whatever You Want Out June 21, 2011
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Olga Wilhelmine Munding's latest album Whatever You Want will be released on June 21, 2011. Olga wrote Whatever You Want with Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars.
Olga explained to me the genesis of this upcoming release: "It's definitely a departure from what either of us have done in the past. We recorded it in 2009 during the time that Jim (Dickinson) got sick and then passed, and I went through my divorce and now I'm finally ready to release it. We decided to do a more pop 80s sort of thing since we're both huge fans of that stuff. The tunes do retain a lot of soul though..."
Olga now lives in Memphis. She's a soulful musician and also serves as founder and president of the Jesse Mae Hemphill foundation. She also appreared in various television shows as well as acted in the New Orleans Jazz Film Festival winner--The Statue--in 2010. Whatever You Want will be released digitally on June 21 through 219 Records/Redeye Distribution. The album is dedicated to Jesse Mae Hemphill and Jim Dickinson.
Stay tuned for more Olga...
